Chelsea are getting better, insists Asmir Begovic

Asmir Begovic looks for the positives after Chelsea's latest defeat at the weekend

Asmir Begovic insists that Chelsea’s performances are gradually getting better – despite the disappointment of the weekend’s Premier League defeat by West Ham United.

The Blues slumped to their fifth loss of the season on Saturday as they were reduced to 10 men and beaten by the Hammers at Upton Park to leave Jose Mourinho’s men in 15th place in the Premier League table and 11 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Mourinho has found himself under increasing pressure in recent weeks, with some reports in the British media claiming that the Portuguese coach could be sacked if the Blues lose to Liverpool next weekend.

However, Blues goalkeeper Begovic, who has been filling in for the injured Thibaut Courtois, feels that the west London club can take encouragement from their recent displays.

Begovic told Chelsea’s website: “We’re going to take it a game at a time – there is still a long way to go.

“This league is very unpredictable so we need to take care of our performances first – I think our performances are getting better so we just need to keep that going.”

Chelsea host Liverpool at Stamford Bridge next weekend looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League.
